European Folk Day: 23rd September 2023

Hiram Salsano is an artist from Campania, Italy. She has shared a piece called Tarantà for our music repository on the website of the European Folk Day. It is included in her self-produced album “Bucolica”. It is her debut album the debut album and she presents it as follows: «Bucolica is a sound dimension that starts from the countryside and the oral tradition of southern Italy, through archaic songs, donated to the contemporary. A transmission of memories, which tries to relive with a strongly current need. “Rocks, blades of grass, myrtle and mastic; I want to get lost and find myself among these elements”». Thank you, Hiram! Her great picture is by Francesco Marini.
